How to attach an existing archive document as Original in the DMS

We have a lot of old pdf in our archive and want to attach them as an original in the DMS, without a new check in.

Is there a function module, a class or an existing program, that I can use?

I have found, that I have to make entries in the tables DMS_DOC2LOIO, DMS_PH_CD1, DMS_PHIO2FILE and DMS_PHF_CD1 to create an original with connection to the archive.

Hi Jan,

unfortunately I believe the there needs to be a new checkin because only by doing so the PHIO- and LOIO-ID will be generated.

If the files are stored into an archive and attached to the document info records already you can try to use reports DMS_KPRO_CONVERT and DMS_KPRO_CONVERT2.

Best regards,
